Press Release: British super featherweight champion Sam Bowen (13-0) is ready to show Zelfa Barrett, Archie Sharp and Lyon Woodstock who the main man is. Bowen recently joined the trio in Frank Warren’s stable when he signed a promotional deal with the Hall of Fame promoter. Bowen will be in action on Warren’s show at Leicester, England’s Morningside Arena on Saturday October 6th, on a bill where Sharp and Woodstock face each other. Bowen, who won the vacant title in April against Maxie Hughes, has no opponent yet.
“To be honest I have watched very little of those three lads, but I believe in my abilities and I will beat all three of them,” said 26-year-old Bowen.
Many envisage a series of fights between the four, which Bowen welcomes and added: “They are all at a similar level. When Zelfa got beaten by Ronnie Clark that opened a few eyes up. He was obviously boxing lads, stopping them and looked amazing. When he moved up he got found out a little bit. He was shocked himself."
Bowen continued, “People think I should know Lyon because we live near each other in Leicestershire, but the first time I ever come across him was when we met at the London press conference announcing the October show.
“I heard that Archie was a very good amateur and has a good background, but that doesn’t win you pro fights. Doing it over three rounds is different to twelve rounds.”
